Maybe you are right, but none of these guys are beyond reproach, none of them. But if the stats drop drastically this year on some players, people are always going to wonder. Whenit comes to making money and getting good contracts, I think these guys will do anything or use anything to do it to help them including HGH and steroids. Brian Naulty was a relief pitcher who pitched for the Yankees in the late 90s and he said he used including a lot of big named Yankees. He also said Jeter then rescinded it. Can you picture the embarrassment to MLB Baseball if Jeter was mentioned or Rivera. I do not think baseball would recover from it. Nothing shocks me anymore, nothing, and people do not continue to be dominant and get better with age. So we shall see what happens this year with the testing.

Rivera and Jeter will always have my respect.
If all players were like them, MLB would be better off.
I don't believe Rivera or Jeter are using anything. I really don't.
I never heard the story where anyone said that. I don't believe someone would throw names out there that werern't involved. It's really sad to think that, but I do believe the Yankees love their heroes and it's the foundation of their whole organization. So, yes, I do believe they would cover it up. And Selig might as well come out as a Yankee fan since everything he does seems to support that organization, along with his umpire staff.
But's it's where alot of money comes from, and there not going to jeopardize massive amounts of money that supposedly comes from the success of the Yankees. The saddest part is thinking about all those years when the Yankees ruled, and there was very little oversight as to what actually transpired during those games.
Btw, you are by far, the bravest poster on this board. By far. You may not be mentioned in some silly popularity contest, but you should be proud. You are something that will never be noted on this Yankee/Sox board. I truly enjoy your posts here.
Yeah he should be proud for sliming one of the few players in the game who has put up decent numbers and played through the steroid era free of PEDs and only because he hates the team he plays for.
Real courageous post.Real stand up guy.
As courageous as me accusing Pedroia of being a user.
